Astronaut Pays Tribute to ‘Starman’ David Bowie from Space – HOT METRO FINDS
Here he is, sitting in a tin can, far above the world — and saying goodbye to David Bowie.
Messages of condolence for the late rock star flowed in Monday from around the world — and from space, where British astronaut Tim Peake tweeted from the International Space Station.
“Saddened to hear David Bowie has lost his battle with cancer — his music was an inspiration to many,” Peake wrote Monday.
The outer-space tribute seemed fitting. Unique and otherworldly, Bowie often seemed like a creature from another planet, the “Starman” of one of his 1970s hits.
